Married couple trying for baby forced to abandon sexual relations for six months following needle incident on train (via Independent.ie)

A married couple, who were participating in a fertility treatment regime in a bid to have children, were forced to abandon sexual relations for six months following a needle-stick incident suffered by the husband on a train, the Circuit Civil Court was told today.

Kenneth Flanagan, of Pearse Place, Fairgreen, Limerick, told Judge James O’Donohue that he and his wife had been trying to conceive a child for 18 months prior to a needle-stick injury to his left hand on June 26th, 2015.

He told Mr Gerard O’Herlihy, for Irish Rail, that they had to defer any plans they had for having children from the time of the incident until the early part of 2016 when he had been given the all-clear following ongoing tests for the detection of any blood borne virus.
